A young adult graphic novel about the champion, the generous advocate, and the one and only Muhammad Ali.

"Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee." Legendary icon Muhammad Ali, known worldwide as "The Greatest", immortalized those words by becoming one of the most significant and celebrated athletes of the 20th Century. Now, his epic story is retold for the next generation as a stunning graphic novel.

Messenger: The Legend of Muhammad Ali chronicles Ali's journey from humble beginnings as Cassius Clay in Louiseville, Kentucky to his meteoric rise to Olympian and Heavyweight Champion of the world. Bringing readers through major moments of his life, this graphic biography pays reverent tribute to Ali the fighter, the poet, and the inspiration he quickly became.
